    Stop messing with OS updates. That's not your problem.

    What carrier is this with and is it activated on that network? I ask because if you're on a CDMA carrier like Verizon or Tellus, you don't use a SIM.

    The problem is that if you're on a GSM carrier (use a SIM card because the g or "Generation" of network has nothing to do with SIM or no SIM) you really should have gotten a 9500 instead. What carrier is the Storm that you have and was it properly unlocked? Also, set your radio network settings to GSM and try again.

    I am guessing if Verizon unlocked it they unlocked sim for global roaming.
    You need a unlock code so you can use any GSM sim card.
    PM me and I can help you get phone unlocked
